Protestors, Harvard Volley Over Wages

By The Boston Globe

A spokesman for the 40 students who have occupied an administration building for 10 days at Harvard said a growing number of professors are backing their demand for a "living wage" of at least $10.25 an hour for university staff. The university, meanwhile, released a letter by a group of faculty members who had previously endorsed the living wage campaign. The letter called on the protesters to leave the building and accept the university's offer of a review of the wage dispute.
